The "people's Rooney" is the best player North Korea brought to South Africa.
He is known for being highly emotional on the pitch, and he shows it every single time before a game.
During the North Korean anthem he goes absolutely crazy and starts to cry as if he just saw his dog get run over on the street. Keep in mind that in North Korea his dog was probably lunch, and so who can blame him right?
The weirdest part of this is that Jong Tae-Se is not North Korean. He was born in Japan in 1984 to a South Korean father and his mother "claims" to be North Korean.
Born in a nation hated by North Korea, with parents from another nation hated by North Korea only leaves him one choice, right? Play for North Korea!
Prior to the cup Jong was asked about the political situation in North Korea to which he replied "I have no idea about that. I know nothing of North Korea's political situation."
Maybe he cries because he realized he made a crappy call.
